Here's a document that our coach had us fill out in our FB group. I posted it in our FB group but wanted to post this here for my records. It's something I hope I will look back on and say, Yes! I did it! I accomplished my goals!!!
Why are you doing this 30 day group:
I need to learn to plan out my meals. It is all too overwhelming for me: creating meals, making sure all meals are healthful, keeping track of all I ate, as well as sticking to the process of planning and sticking to the plan. (Did all that makes sense?). I also want to start exercising and I need a place where I can be held accountable.
What is your goal for the first week:
To be able to plan out a meal plan, go shopping and stick to the list of foods necessary for the week without buying anything extra (chips, cookies). I also want to stick to the meal plan for ONE FULL WEEK. (I’ve never done it before to the T… so I’m hoping this time I don’t disappoint myself).
What is your 15 day goal:
To become better at meal planning. I also want to stick to exercising at least three times a week. Losing a couple pounds in the process won’t hurt either. J
What is your 30 day goal:
By the end of 30 days I would like to have established a meal planning routine. I’d also like to establish a routine for regular meals and snacks instead of eating only when I realize I am so hungry…. Usually when that happens, I eat anything and everything in sight. I would also like to be able to finally stick to a workout routine for more than a week. Needless to say, I would love to lose at least 5 lbs.
What do you hope to achieve by being a part of this group?
I hope to prove to myself that for ONCE, I can stick to a plan and be fully committed. It’s been almost 4 years at this weight and I’ve started more times that I can count. Something always got in the way and I fell back into old habits. I am hoping that this group, this program and this entire experience will help me stay committed for the full 30 days. At the end of the 30 days – I will be proud of myself for the first time in a long time.
Will you be working out during this 30 days? If so, what program will you be doing and how often will you be working out each week?
Focus T25 will be my workout. I will try my very best to follow the program to the T.
Lastly, tell us a little bit about yourself. Give us a short paragraph about who you are, your family and what you like to do in your spare time.
I’m a 33 yr old mother to one very happy and active 3 year old. My husband, my son and I live in NJ. I work full time, usually get home around 5 pm and by the time everything in the house is done, it’s around 9 pm and I’m so ready for bed I can’t even think about exercise. However, with this challenge, I have made some changes, I convinced myself that the time I spend doing diddly squat might as well be used for something productive. No more FB, no more YouTube, TV until my workout and meal planning is done. Turns out, I have PLENTY of time I can squeeze those two into, still spent some time with my 3 year old and be in bed by 10. WHO KNEW????
Since I don’t have much spare time, I don’t really do many fun things. (I know, I’m boring). My spare time will now be taken up by Focus T25 and things that have to do with this Challenge. For me, that’s the only way.
1 bad habit – late night eating
2 good habits – I try to eat vegetables and / or fruit with every meal.
I have started to eat breakfast every day while cutting down on
Coffee ( I used to drink 5 – 6 cups a day)
PS - I completed Day 1 of Focus T25. Yes, I'm still alive. Yes, I thought I was going to die. Yes, I will do it again tomorrow with a smile on my face!
